LGBTQ+ Youth & Family Day
June 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
This joy-filled event will bring together LGBTQ+ youth, queer families and allies to North and South Straub park for this one-of-a-kind Pride event. Last year’s event was a remarkable reflection of St. Pete’s diverse and open-minded community, with many of the attendees being ally families. Guests will enjoy family-focused activities, vendors, and main stage performances.
The Body Electric Yoga will be offering FREE Yoga/Beats classes under their tent at 10:15am, 12:15pm, and 2:15pm. Yoga/Beats is a fun hybrid, starting with power vinyasa before switching gears to our music-based, bodyweight workout. You will have fun and you will sweat! We wind down with yoga stretching and of course, savasana to send you on your way with your head and body right.
Great Explorations Children’s Museum is bringing Morris’ Fun on Wheels to Family Day! Morris’ Fun On Wheels contains high-quality and research-based, jumbo manipulatives and games that develop gross motor skills and enhance S.T.E.M knowledge. Through these explorations, participants will be able to: create and recreate structures through construction blocks, practice basic physics, improve spatial, bodily and directional awareness, and synthesize trajectories through physical strategy games and more! The activities in the trailer include Giant Connect 4 and Giant Checkers, huge building blocks, bucket stilts, and hula hoops to mention a few. We know it will be a lot of fun!
The Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Development team will be attending Family Day this year! The Lightning will be setting up a ball hockey rink, for any child that wants to come out and play hockey. No skill or equipment is required, and all kids will go home with a FREE Lightning ball hockey stick and ball (first come first serve, limited quantity available).
Spheres Bubble Show, as seen on America’s Got Talent, is back at Family Day showcasing their unique fusion of art, science, and magic!
